We have seen how Uranus influences the markets over many decades, and how the Jupiter-Mars cycle makes changes over many months. Now let's look at Saturn, the planet in between, to see its impact over many years.

We start with the latest conjunction of Uranus with Saturn, which occurred June 8, 1988. This did not occur near one of the fixed 72° points that we have been talking about so far. However, Cowan identifies this conjunction as a critically important time from which to measure Saturn's movements to determine impacts on the current markets.
6/8/1988: Uranus-Saturn Conjunction
The conjunction occurred at 29° Sagittarius. Cowen has identified significant market turns associated with 60° and 72° movements of Saturn from this starting position. The 60° movements are marked in orange in the graph below, with 72° movements in purple.
S&P Correlation With Saturn 60° and 72° Movements from the 6/8/1988 Uranus-Saturn Conjunction
Why is Saturn's influence more sensitive to the harmonics of this conjunction than those of the NYSE natal chart? I don't know. The next 60° harmonic (300°) will occur mid-July 2012. Saturn completes the circle back to 29° Sagittarius in mid-November 2017.


  1. Thinking out loud here - the next sat/uran conjunction isn't until 2032. I'm wondering if, rather than repeat the +60 and +72 from the June 8, 1988 conjunction, it would make sense to add 60 and 72 to the last sat/uran opposition on 9/2/2009. thoughts?

  2. I think the natal chart of the S&P gives the real reason for these turn dates rather than the conjunction. This is covered here:

  3. good point - added remarks to that below that post. also wanted to add that in looking at an earlier Sat/Uran opposition on 11/16/1965 at 16:08 pisces and virgo (346:08 and 166:08) - I'm noticing these are a pentagon point and a pentagon midpoint... hmmm. will check further.
